Forum: GratefulDead Subject: I just wanted to say something...

I don't remember when it happened, or why, or how, or what was the 'drama' that time that caused it... but somehow I got thrown in the center of a lot of stuff here on forum time and time again over the last 8 months. and I guess as a joke, I got labeled the 'heart and soul of the forum'.

I'm not sure if anybody has noticed, but I really don't post here anymore, except for 'social' posts to those I know and care about. And in all honesty, every one of my posts have always been of a social nature, because I guess I originally came to the forum for 'community'. and that's why I still come and read the threads.

I don't pretend to be the heart and soul of anything. I'm just Gina.

Um, you cannot elect yourself...therefore you cannot resign your position. If they say you are...you are!

Labels...ha! The more we learn about each person here, the less labels seem to matter. Newby, oldby, man, woman, pighead, touchhead...whatever. It's about the people and the music. You love both, that is clear.

You just keep doing what yer doing....:)

Great, there you go again being reasonable and intelligent. You're gonna give this place a bad name. Can't you at least throw in a litte "2" rant? Kind of even things out a bit.

Heart and Soul, maybe not, but a fine contributor to the social conscience whence us boys get too far out of whack. The point that Ace was making is well taken, where once the fellows would trip over themselves for a little endearment from the feminine kind, Stephanie has been met with the paranoid havoc left in the wake of our pal the deuce.

(If she turns out to actually be the deuce, I'll be dining on roasted crow.)

Well, I referred to you as a kind of unofficial den mother a while back because you have the ability to bring an oft unruly crowd back to the table. I think that is a good attribute--but it is only an attribute, and not a definition or a caricature--at least it was/is not meant to be (besides, it made you smile).

But being "just Gina" is plenty. And sometimes folks have strange ways of returning hugs. Some do it with arms, some with words. Either way . . . . :)

I believe it was frankbladespi who refered to DB as "heart and soul". I actually think the guy was truthful in a lot of what he said. But that's just me. And anyway....you all have got to listen to Alligator from 08/23/68. Yeah!

That is one fine Alligator...but I'm listening to a finer one right now:

Actually, on second thought, they're equal. But this one is a must-listen!

Is there a "bad" Alligator?
